Description (last modified by )
It seems to be a problem to compute Hecke eigenvalues for Modular Symbol subspaces at integers dividing the level N unless the eigenvalue for the Hecke operator at N is computed first. I have verified this problem for sage versions between 5.8 and 5.12.beta.
Example
sage: M=ModularSymbols(5,6,sign=1) sage: S=M.decomposition() sage: f=S[0] sage: f.eigenvalue(10) IndexError Traceback (most recent call last) ... IndexError: n must be a positive integer sage: f.eigenvalue(5) 25 sage: f.eigenvalue(10) 50

The code used the recursive formula for the Hecke eigenvalues of ppower index without implementing the base case. This is fixed in the attached branch.
